Acer :: Bluetooth Showing Up As Unkown Device
I just got a Logitech Bluetooth mouse and for the first time my Bluetooth is apparently messed up.
Previously, I have been using it weekly to sync my phone with Outlook via Bluetooth...so this is a brand new situation.
I have an Acer Ferrari 4006WLMi running Windows Vista Ultimate 32bit.
My Broadcom Bluetooth chip shows up as Unknown Device under Universal Serial Bus controllers. Turning it on and off(using the button on the front of the laptop) got it to show up once properly as a Broadcom chip under Network adapters. However, I can't get it to show up properly again.
I've tried uninstalling it and letting Windows find it again but that doesn't help. I downloaded the latest bluetooth drivers from Acer's site however it won't install w/o a Bluetooth device being installed.

Acer :: New Laptop -Bluetooth ... No Device?
I bought a new laptop the other day, its:
Acer aspire 7540G
Ive never EVER had such a high spec laptop before (well it may not be high spec to some people but as it is to me )
Anyway, m just wondering, its got a bluetooth button on it, when i press it it says 'no device' on my screen.
I thought maybe I could search using my ps3 for the lappy but it doesnt come up with anything.
What can i do with this bluetooth thing and how do i activate it?
Acer :: Aspire 5570 Bluetooth Device Missing
I have upgraded to Windows XP and reinstalled all the drivers I need from the Acer website. Wireless networking is fine.
The problem is, when I slide the Bluetooth switch on the front of my computer while a device (Nintendo Wiimote) is waiting to connect to the computer, "No Device" in green text shows up on the bottom of my screen. I think this shows the driver is somewhat working and the hardware is detected.
The LED indicator beside the switch does not light up.
I go to my control panel and double click the "Bluetooth Configuration" icon, nothing happens for a while, then a single dialog shows up saying "Bluetooth device not found. Please verify that your Bluetooth device is properly connected and turned on." showing only an OK button.
Inside the computer management window, under device manager, a group called "Bluetooth Devices" exists, and inside is something named "Bluetooth Bus Enumerator". I have right clicked on both and tried "Scan for Hardware Changes" and nothing happened. The properties show that "This device is working properly"
Drivers Provider is Broadcom
Yes I have restarted my computer several times.
All of the above actions were performed four, once with my finger holding the switch and once without, then again with the Wiimote in a waiting-for-connector mode.
My Wii is turned off with the power supply unplugged, there are no other devices with Bluetooth in my house.
how to get Bluetooth working.
There are other problems with this laptop, the card reader only supports SD cards, not Memory Sticks or xD cards. That's a problem for another day. However I would never recommend this laptop and this brand to anyone, but it was pretty cheap.
Dell :: Studio 1555 Bluetooth Peripheral Device
When I switch on my laptop, the Found New Hardware Wizard starts saying "Windows needs to install driver software for your Bluetooth Peripheral Device". If I click on the Locate and Install Driver Option, it is unable to install any drivers.

Dell :: Cannot Sync To Mobile Device Ctr W/ Bluetooth
Have Dell Latitude D830 and PPC Phone
* Bluetooth syncing between PPC mobile phone does not work
* Bluetooth between PPC mobile phone and Dell Laptop pairs
* USB Syncing between mobile phone and Mobile device center works
* Bluetooth syncing between PPC mobile phone prior to system reinstall DID work and worked well.
* Bluetooth mouse was paired first this time and works well.
I have a windows pocket pc phone that connected to Bluetooth very well with my Dell D830 prior to the crash I had last week. In fact, it worked better with Bluetooth than it did with the USB connection. After receiving a hard drive from Dell with the Vista Dell Basic operating system image on it and set my system up again along with all my programs and downloaded and installed the Mobile Device Center 6.1 from the Microsoft site. I synced pocket PC phone up with usb and had no problems. I set up my bluetooth and it connected with no problems. (I have a Bluetooth mouse that I set up and it works perfectly.) The Mobile Device Center partnership with bluetooth will not work. When I select ActiveSync and select Menu/Sync with Bluetooth, the Mobile center does not recognize the PPC phone. I see no response from the Mobile Device Center at all.
Dell :: Unknown Device :: Base System In Device Manager?
I got my new laptop today, and got rid of the installed Dell Crap and installed my Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.
Now under my Device Manager I've got two issues:
I contacted Dell, they said they won't support my laptop since I don't have their operating system on it. All I want to know is what drivers I need. I can't believe they couldn't let me know.
HP/Compaq :: DV9000 104-unsupported Wireless Network Device Detected. System Halted. Remove Device And Restart
I have the DV9000 series Laptop. It is the DV9235NR model (but not the DV9200 series...shows DV9000 on the bottom).
Anyways...I decided to try to upgrade the interal wireless G with a wireless N card that is from HP. It has the HP part number and everything. When I put the card in, this error comes up. I read that the bios doesn't recongnize the card. I took the card out, booted up to Windows with my old wireless card, put the computer in sleep mode, took out the old card and put the new card in. Works perfect. I know the card it good.
How can I make the new card work without having to do this? I heard about a bios hack. How is this done? Could I modify the Wifi card also? I did update to the newest bios on my laptop (dated 2008) and that didn't work. How about a bios from another series laptop?
Acer :: HWmonitor Showing Only 1 Core. 6925g

I ran the cpu on high, and windows task manager does show two panes. in cpuz, it shows clock speed as 1500mhz, but it jumps to 2500 mhz when I do something process intensive.
also it is always at 17 degrees c, even when I ran the 3dmark cpu test.
Acer :: 1810T: How Do I Disable Power Management On Bluetooth; Keep Bluetooth Fully Powered
My Bluetooth keyboard goes to sleep after a period of idle and it takes 15 seconds for the Acer Aspire 1810T to wake up and notice the Bluetooth keypresses.
However, I found out my Bluetooth keyboard works reliably when I have a second Bluetooth device connected and active at the time (such as either a headset or bluetooth tethering to a cellphone as modem), the computer doesn't have a 15 second lag in noticing the Bluetooth keyboard again - the keyboard works almost right away even after being unused for sometime.
So that means the culprit is in the power management on the Acer Bluetooth module. Is there a way to force the Bluetooth module to never go to sleep? Any checkbox somewhere, a register setting? Even going as far to purchase a different Bluetooth driver? Or any other option? Sometimes the sleep is useful, but it definitely isn't useful with the Bluetooth keyboard. This problem does not happen if I use an external Bluetooth dongle.
(With BatteryBar Pro, I notice that power consumption falls suddenly whenever the Bluetooth module goes to sleep when the keyboard goes idle for more than 30 seconds, and at this point, it has difficulty 'waking up' when I start typing on the Bluetooth keyboard. But the problem also still happens when the laptop is plugged in!)
Acer :: How To Enable Bluetooth On D150 Without External Bluetooth Button Under LED
I have finally tested the Acer Empowering Technology software on my Acer D150.
Great news, the software works to enable/disable the Bluetooth module on the netbook without physically pressing the button. This is great for people like me that do not have the button on top to push the button inside. There are two software needed for people to get this running on the D150. First is the required “Acer Empowering Framework” software and the second is the “Acer ePower Management.” Once both software are installed on the system, the setting to enable/disable the Bluetooth module is in the ePower Management.
Power profiles within windows will probably be reset to default, so those would have to be readjusted if a user changed them. I am actually running Windows Vista on my Acer D150 with the Acer Empowering Technology software for Vista. I am not 100% sure if the software will also work on XP, but from the notebookreview forums, I believe it should work just as fine (but more options on other Empowering Technology software).
(in XP, the driver also works, but need XP edition, not vista editon).
Acer :: Recovery Partition Showing 100% Free Disc Space?
I have just upgraded from Windows 7 RTC Ultimate to Windows 7 RTM pro.
The weird things is, that there are two hidden partitions:
There are two hidden partitions and they have both 100% free disc space. I know one of them is the recovery from Acer, but it says nothing of the disc space is used !
Luckily, I have a recovery CD.
Another weird thing is in Auslogic Disc Defrag:
There are a removal drive and it's leading to the Windows folder on the C: drive O_O?
Acer :: Acer 6920 - No Audio Output Device Found
I had vista installed on my laptop, Acer 6920, (first OS) and it was direct from factory so everything worked fine. I then installed ubuntu and everything still worked fine. I then deinstalled both of those to put on windows 7 RC where all my hardware was working perfectly (minus the fingerprint reader but i honestly couldnt care about that thing) so my computer eventually got pretty bogged down with crap to the point where boot was about 30 minutes. during this whole time my sound seemed to work, but near the end windows stopped finding any internal sound related hardware (the speakers and the mic). For other reasons i did a clean reformat (3 times) and reinstalled 7 Professional 32 bit and when i booted i downloaded all the drivers and everything seemed to install correctly, but when i rebooted the sound still didnt work nor did the mic. the exact error message windows is giving me is "No Audio Output Device found" however when i plug in a headset or a bluetooth adapter + headphones there is audio and it works perfectly. I really need sound to work as some programs crash if they dont detect a sound output and also for monitoring audio recordings.
I have tried installing all of Realtek's drivers. Literally all of them. None of them worked what so ever despite clean installs and deinstalls.
I now am running 64bit and ive almost given up on this problem. I bearly saved this computer and i dont wanna have to buy a new because of sucha stupid issue like this.
Under the hardware manager in windows there is no tree for sound devices. there was an unknown component which i put forceware on as i thought it was the sound device but no go.

Acer :: ( 7520) No Audio Output Device Is Installed
I bought a laptop of type:
ACER ASPIRE 7520-5971
AMD Athlon 64 X2
384MB Nvidia Geforce 7000M
CHIPSET: NVIDIA nFORCE 560
BIOS: Brand: Acer, V1.33
SOUND DEVICE: Realtek High Definition Audio.
Six Months Ago, the Sound Device Stopped Working, I get the following message (No Audio Output Device is installed): It is as if NO audio device is installed on the motherboard.
Here's the catch:
Sometimes when I START my computer the Device Works, and Sometimes It doesn't. If I restart the computer like 20-30 consecutive times (IF I'M LUCKY) chances that in one of these restarts the device MAY Work. Sometimes i go weeks without Audio.
Here are *some* things I've Tried:
1) Format the System:
Different OSs I've tried: Windows XP Home/Pro, Vista, 7 and Linux.
The expirience the same problem with all these OSs. So It's not an OS thing............
Acer :: No Network Adapter Found Under Device Manager
i bought a acer laptop @ bestbuy and it came with preinstall vista home. i used the computer fine and all and the internet connects to my router find and was surfing the internet. i then decided to install a fresh copy of my own vista ultimate because i dont like the preinstall stuff that they did because it just clutters up space. after i finish my install of vista ultimate, my laptop doesn't connect to the internet. i know this is simply but i dont see network adapters under the device manager in the computer management screen. i am worried because if i have to install the driver, then i would see some icons with a yellow exclamation mark, but i dont see NETWORK ADAPTERS AT ALL. i dont know how to solve this? any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks all. i've tried to press scan for new hardware changes but still i dont see the network adpaters. i thought if you install vista ultimate, then it will install the wireless drivers for you too.
Acer :: Aspire 5520 No Sound Device Installed
I have upgraded to Windows 7 x64 (a fair while ago) and rencently it has started to come up with "No sound device installed" over the speaker icon in the sys tray.
This happens about 50% of the time when the computer has started up.
It never has any issues once the sound is working.
When the sound is not working "Sound, Video and Game Controllers" in Device manager is missing and i cant find the "Reltek HD Audio" device any where else in device manager.
It's just had a freash install of the OS and is still not working reliably.
It's got the latest Win 7 x64 drivers from RelTek
Acer :: Crystal Eye Webcam/Unknown Device - 5739g
I basically used my webcam every night with Skype to talk to my friends. The very next day, it stops working. Ive literally tried everything. In the device manager, I have an "Unknown Device" listed as a USB. Im 100% sure this use to be my Camera.
I just used the Acer factory CDs to reinstall my OS + Drivers. All the drivers were successfully installed with the exception of the Camera Drivers (because the computer doesnt see a camera)
I tried to download the drivers from the Acer website but (both Chicony and Suyin) and everytime I try to install them a error comes up that says "Camera not found!" I have a laptop so I have no clue how its not finding it.
ive been working on this for hours now and its really getting frustrating. Here are the things ive tried, and if someone knows a solution or a different method I havent tried to fix it, PLEASE let me know
1. Reformatted computer using Acer recovery discs
2. Downloaded and tried to install drivers from acer website (camera not found problem)
3. Put windows in Safe mode, uninstalled unknown device, restarted computer to let it automatically scan/update (still failed)
4. Deleted all pictures from My Pictures
5. Tried using Windows Vista drivers and setting to Vista Compatibility mode (I have windows 7), no avail
6. Uninstalled and reinstalled Unknown Device (aka camera) driver, didnt work
7. Tried the windows update software option, windows said everything was fine (pshhh).
8. Uninstalled unknown device, used the option "scan for hardware changes" still didnt work
9. Installed skype to see if the webcam would be recognized, which it wasnt.
Acer :: Dvd Drive Disappear From Both My Computer And Device Manager
I currently have an Acer Extensa 5620z-4801. About a month ago, I started using my laptop to burn DVDs. The DVD burner worked just fine for the first 2 DVDs. I used Ashampoo. After those 2 DVDs, it stopped working. I checked on My Computer, and the DVD drive wasn't there. At first I thought it was just temporary, so I restarted my laptop. But then after that, it's still not there, and I freaked out. I checked my device manager to find it, but it vanished from device manager also. I tried to google to find a solution, but doesn't help. I tried that regedit method, but I couldn't find neither upperfilter nor the lowerfilter or whatsoever. I tried removing prime and secondary IDE and reinstall, but doesn't help.

Dell :: Bluetooth Disappears After Standby. Vista + Bluetooth 370.
I noticed a few other threads around the internet about this issue, but couldnt find a definitive answer on how to get it fixed, so I thought I would try it here.
The problem is that when I go into standby and wake from it, my bluetooth icon disappears and bluetooth doesnt work.
I have a Dell Studio XPS 13 running Vista 64 with the Dell bluetooth 370 minicard. Ive tried using the generic windows bluetooth drivers as well as Dell's drivers.
Nothing appears in device manager as well. I have to manually go into bluetooth settings, disable the device, then re-enable it.
Dell :: Showing 14x Multiplier Like IDA
I heve T9500 penryn processor with 2,60 GHz and the CPU-Z is showing sometimes 13.5x multiplier =2.7GHz (without any undervolting software or lite that)
The RMclock showing 14x multiplier like IDA and CPUgenie only 13x multiplier
what that means, Is it possible to have 2, 7 when it is only 2, 6 GHz?
Apple :: MBP - DVD Drive Not Showing Up
i'm having another issue now with my MBP. The DVD Drive isn't showing up in windows or in osx. The drive is physically working because i put in a DVD but now it's stuck. When i press the eject button in osx nothing happens. I don't even see a option for a d: drive in windows.
Dell :: HDMI Output Showing Postage Stamped
new SXPS 16 owner (Windows 7). I'm trying to run HDMI out to an external XL2370 Samsung monitor.
Works, but the image shows postage stamped (black border on all four sides. So the image is 21" diagonally on my 23" diagonal screen).
If I hook the SXPS to my big TV via HDMI, I get the same result (postage stamp).
If I hook up my HD camcorder to either my TV or my new monitor via the HDMI port, the image fills the screen as expected.
If I hook up the SXPS to the new monitor via VGA, it fills the screen. So this points to the HDMI output of LT being the problem...
HP/Compaq :: G60T-200 Showing Memory Errors
Figured the G60T was sufficient, cheaped out on everything, 3GB memory. Loaded everything up and started receiving blue screen in Vista. Reloaded from factory image and still seems to be flaky. I ran memtest 86+ (failed in test 5 and 8) and windows diagnostic tools failed ERAND test. I think the memory is okay as they test fine separately so either timing off or bus or something else is messed. One week of frustration with HP support. Bottom line HP answer is if the BIOS memory test runs okay, then everything is okay. What a hassle. Anyone know if there is some quirk that would have the tests fail but everything be okay? I guess we'll return but printer and other rebates were bundled in along with cash back.
Dell :: Hitachi 7k200 200GB Drive Only Showing 110GB
I recently purchased a Hitachi 7k200 200GB hard drive and used the trial version of Acronis True Image to transfer the image of my old drive to the new one. It all seemed to work fine, but today I was going to use GParted liveCD to delete my Vista partition, and saw that the drive only showed a size of 110GB. It had been showing 186GB before today. I checked the size on Acronis, and it said the size was 110GB as well.
why it is doing this? 70GB of unallocated space can't just disappear. How can I get my system to recognize the full size of the drive again?
I was messing around some this morning with reinstalling Dell's Media Direct, could that have caused it?
Apple :: Adium Only Showing Blue/Green Buddy Icon
I have the latest version of Adium download on my new Macbook Pro but for some reason my Display Picture Icon only shows the Blue/Green MSN Buddy on the other end of the party.

Anyone else have this problem or know how to resolve it? I use MSN Messenger.
Apple :: Core I7 IMacs Showing Up DOA And With Cracked Screens
Apple's new Core i7-based iMac might be a performance monster, but it looks like the whole family's having some problems getting out of the gate: in addition to the previously-noted performance issues with the Core 2 Duo models, a quick glance across Apple's support forums and on other Mac boards around the web reveals that some machines are showing up DOA and / or with cracked screens. We're a little more familiar with the DOA issue, since the new i7 we just bought doesn't boot at all, but the cracked screen issue seems to be equally common and mostly affecting the bottom left corner, from what we can tell. Now, our review Core 2 Duo 27-inch iMac is perfectly fine, and Chris Ziegler's new Core i7 machine doesn't have any problems either, so these obviously aren't universal issues, but if you're about to stick one of these under the tree for someone it might be wise to do some surreptitious testing first.
Wouldn't surprise me if it was happening during shipping, the box my MBP came in had a big hole in it. (luckily it was double boxed) Maybe they have a problem with their packaging design.
Dell :: Bluetooth 365/370 Modules Failing-multiple Platform,multiple Bluetooth Versions
I have need to use Bluetooth stereo audio functionality (A2DP profile) almost exclusively when I use my laptop.
I had owned a M1330 with the Dell 355 Bluetooth Module for several years without issue. Last November, I decided to upgrade and purchased an M15x (laptop #1) with the Dell 370 Bluetooth module included,running Windows 7 x64 Ultimate. Not more than one day out of the box,the 370 module failed while watching a movie. It literally disappeared from device manager and no uninstalling/reinstallation of drivers alleviated the situation. The only way to get the radio to be recognized by the operating system was, and is, to shutdown,reboot into bios,disable the card in bios,reboot into windows,restart,boot into bios,enable the card and then reboot into Windows. The card would then work for awhile but eventually fail again. The module works for short periods of time but if put under an extended load,fails. That and other issues with the M15x caused me to return it.
Contacted Dell and returned the M15x and bought and built a Studio XPS 1645 (laptop #2) to replace it. Received the unit and literally within the 1st few hours,the 370 module failed exactly like the M15x.I thought o.k. a bad card and had tech support send out a new module for the XPS 1645. Received and installed it and the exact same problem happened. Failed when under an extended load. Again called tech support and was then dispatched an onsite tech to replace the entire motherboard and card. No resolution-card failed again. Spoke with a resolution specialist and returned it and again purchased a M15x (laptop #3-really liked the M15x over the XPS 1645)
Received the M15x-Bluetooth failure again. At this point, was considering dropping Dell altogether but thought I'd try the Studio 1558 (laptop #4) with the Bluetooth 365 module, in order to rule out the 370 card, first. Ordered and was delivered on the 5th of April, same exact issue-failure of card under a load. I am returning this defective Studio 1558 and again getting a M15x (laptop #5). I realize that the M15x Bluetooth card will fail again-in fact,am 100% sure it will fail,but have bought a Sony Bluetooth transmitter as a workaround.
What appears to be happening is that the card will shutdown when it gets warm.This is either a Broadcom manufacturing defect or a Dell engineering issue. I know now through personal experience that there is a serious issue with Dell Bluetooth cards.
If this was happening with only one laptop, I'd be ok with it but, this is occuring across multiple laptop platforms, with both Broadcom Bluetooth cards that Dell brands and sells.
This is either an oversight by engineering-maybe they didn't test the card under a heavy load, or Dell is knowingly selling defective equipment.
Acer :: 5920G Bluetooth
I have a Acer Aspire 5920G, it came without bluetooth, but with the button upon pressing it, a message comes up "No device"
I bought this from ebay:[url]
and fitted it today, the connector was available and space for the chip to sit and screw.
I started the laptop up, and the laptop did not come with any message about a new device.
I downloaded the driver from acers website this one:[url]
but when installing it it comes up with no bluetooth device detected.
I dont know what to do now.
Whilst fitting the bluetooth i managed to break the connector for my keyboard but ordered a new one which should come tomorrow or friday.
Acer :: Bluetooth And 5610
How I put the bluetooth back on my 5610? When I first got the laptop, bluetooth was enabled (I think) as there was a blue LED lit on the front of the machine by the sliding bluetooth control button. I have since had to reformat as I loaded some drivers for a Compro TV stick that was 'supposed' to be Vista compatible. Needless to say, it screwed everything up so I ended up just reformatting and reloading everything. I have been to the Acer FTP site as Acer themselves told me to do and clicked on the Vista link and downloaded the Bluetooth program and loaded it but nothing happens? No blue LED or nowt.
Acer :: Bluetooth Module
where i can get the bluetooth module from mine didn't come with it added as standard, so using a dongle i have took the back off and i see there is a small empty bay next to the wireless card so guess that is were the bluetooth module goes
Acer :: Aspire 4736z Bluetooth
Just wanted to share my upgrade experience with my Aspire 4736z. My model did not come with bluetooth installed from the factory and it only has 3 usb ports and I wanted to keep them as free as possible.
So I found a place that sells the bluetooth module and cable needed.
I installed the module and cable and everything works great. Installed the driver and now my bluetooth button works as it should.
Here is the link to the place where I bought the module from:
Acer :: 5920 Diy Bluetooth
i have acquired a broadcom bcm 92045nmd bluetooth device and cable.
will this fit into my motherboard? if so are there any guides online to do this?
it currently states 'no device' when the bluetoth button is pressed.
